Unicef Academic Lecture: Education of the Child

March 30 at 19:00 - 21:00

In this day and age of misinformation, fake news and an increasing global tension, it is now, more than ever, important to educate and protect our children. Children’s rights and the violations of these rights continue to leave their scars. Apart from having to deal with the social and political struggles faced by today’s (and tomorrow’s) society, our increasingly competitive job market requires our children to have a solid academic foundation.

On the 30th of March 2017 the UNICEF Student Team – The Hague is proud to present an academic lecture on the theme of Education of the Child. Three expert speakers with extensive knowledge on the subject will provide a 20-minute lecture each. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience. The aim is to stimulate an interactive discussion about the obstacles facing child rights and education today.

The Speakers:

– Behnaz Taebi, Lecturer at the Social & Educational Department of the Hague University of Applied Sciences.
Topic: The Right to Education

– Joris Sprakel, Lecturer in International Law @ the Hague University of Applied Sciences & Lawyer @ Fischer Advocaten.
Topic: Discrimination in Education
